A new era...

It is truly a new era.

I have, at last, updated from Mac OS 10.3.9 and am successfully running Leopard, 10.5.6. This in turn has allowed me to get my beautiful, sweet little new iPod Touch running.

It's so different from my old heavy white iPod classic. Back then, there was no WiFi, nothing fancy, just music. I went out in the world with the earbuds, and it was just me and the 'Pod. Now it's the entire world in there too. It's...a bit distracting, but pretty! And my son loves the super-simple touch/shake games like Balloons and Dice and Scribble.

AND, I must point out, there is a free ebook reader for the iPod/iPhone! It's called Stanza--do a search and you'll find it. And it reads many many formats, and can download your Fictionwise bookshelf if you have an account there. A great sign for us ebook authors.

Anyway--Mac people who are similarly updated, you can share your favorite tricks and tips now if you like.

I'm pretty happy with my iphone as well for the same reason. Suddenly the world is in my pocket, not just my music.

But my ipod classic still holds the throne for all out music selection. The 16gb iphone can't hold a candle to 160gb of music and movies. but for overall usefulness, the phone kicks butt.

Yeah, the lesser capacity of the iPhone, and the fact that I just don't care that much about phones, helped me lean toward the iPod Touch instead. Same fun games, at least. :)
